A new book by one of the Navy SEALs who took part in the killing of Osama Bin Laden is getting publicity that publishers only dream about.
The problem is, the publicity is not necessarily good.
The author of the book, who used the pen name Mark Owen, has been criticized by security experts for potentially jeopardizing the safety of current and former SEALs by disclosing information about the May 2011 raid that killed the man who orchestrated the attacks on America on September 11, 2001.
Neither the Pentagon nor the CIA vetted the book for accuracy and the author could be subject to prosecution for revealing national security secrets and/or sensitive military information.
Compounding matters is that some media outlets have identified the author, which could put him in danger.
Security leaks have been a controversial topic in this year's presidential campaign as Pres. Obama was accused by some of exploiting the raid for political gain by referencing it in political ads.
"No Easy Day" is being published on Sep. 11, which leaves it open to charges of exploitation.
So, who's right in this controversy?
Should the author of "No Easy Day" be disclosing state secrets? Should he be charged for doing so? Should he have been identified?
